Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are engaged. The couple announced the news on social media on January 12, 2021.
“In July 2020 we were sitting under this banyan tree. We asked for magic. We were unaware of the pain we would face together in such a short, hectic time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices that the relationship would require of us, but intoxicated with love. And the karma. Somehow a year and a half later, after going through hell together and laughing more than I ever thought possible, he asked me to marry him,” Fox captioned in part an Instagram post.
“‘Yes, in this life and in every life’ under the same branches under which we fell in love, I brought her back to ask her to marry me. I know tradition is one ring, but I designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birthstone) and the diamond (my birthstone) sitting on two magnetic bands of thorns that act as two halves drawing together of the same soul form the obscure heart that is our love,” MGK commented on an Instagram video of Fox’s engagement ring.
Shortly after the news broke, Vanderpump Rules star Randall Emmett took to his Instagram to congratulate the couple.
Here’s what you need to know:
Emmett took to Instagram to send congratulatory messages to MGK and Fox, letting them both know he’s “so happy” for them. The couple actually met on the set of Emmett’s 2020 film Midnight in the Switchgrass. They fell in love quickly and had a whirlwind romance with many ups and downs, according to Fox’s engagement announcement.
It’s unclear what might have happened between Emmett and MGKMF, but the power couple chose not to attend the “Switchgrass” premiere. MGK also tweeted that the film was garbage. “When I’m not talking about a movie or tweeting, I’m hardly there because it is [trash]’ MGK wrote using the trash can emoji, according to E! Messages. The tweet has since been deleted.
Though Fox didn’t outwardly criticize the film, she blamed the recent spike in COVID-19 cases for her absence. “Due to California’s recent mask mandate and the increase in Covid cases, Megan Fox will no longer be attending tonight’s premiere,” a representative for the actor said in a statement, according to People Magazine.
Emmett’s now-ex, Lala Kent, shared that MGK actually apologized for the tweet. “I found the tweet extremely mean. Save that nasty stuff for us reality TV stars,” Kent told Andy Cohen on Oct. 5, 2021 on Watch What Happens Live.
“He texted Randall apologizing and the film was great. So he redeemed himself,” Kent said.
Although Emmett has restricted people’s ability to comment on his Instagram posts, a few influencer accounts reposted his tribute to MGKMF, and everyone thought it was a bit odd that Emmett would post anything, given the history between them all.
“Um, dude. they are not your friends They talked shit about your film and didn’t show up for the premiere. And called it TRASH,” NotSkinnyButNotFat’s Amanda Hirsch wrote on her Instagram story.
“On cue for Rand,” wrote Maggie Kelley of BestofBravo.
“Randall… they didn’t come to your movie [premiere] and openly said the film was not good. Are you alright?” wrote the person who runs Bravoandcocktails_.
On January 13, 2022, Emmett went to his Instagram Stories to share another post about MGKMF. This time? He said he spoke to them after their engagement. “Talking to you two yesterday made me smile so much. Congratulations again, ”Emmett captioned a screenshot of a message about the engagement, tagging both MGK and Fox.
“The thirst,” wrote the person who runs Bravoandcocktails_.
“I’m dying. To make it clear that he’s not just remotely fangirls,” Hirsch wrote, noting that Emmett emphasized that he “spoke” to the couple to make sure people knew they were all friends “Have some self respect dude,” she added.
